The 8 quarter-finalists:
I am blogging about this 2 days after the last round of the elimination stages for the last 16, now leaving 8 teams for the quarter-finals…was busy these days 😛
Yes, Mr Platini and Mr Blatter may not like the English sides at all, but sorry for you guys, all 4 of them involved in the competition are still alive and kicking!
Tuesday night saw Liverpool give a thrashing to Real Madrid, a night which ended 4-0 in favor of the former, and 5-0 on aggregate. Chelsea had to battle harder, earning a 2-2 draw against 10 men Juve, but winning 3-2 on aggregate.
Wednesday night was an important one for every Man United fan, 0-0 in the first leg, had to win the second leg to get through, and win they did, although lucky not to concede in the end, Vidic and Ronaldo’s goals 4 minutes in either half qualified the Red Devils. Elsewhere, Roma & Arsenal had to go through to penalty-shootout before Arsenal eventually being victorious.
Am afraid though that UEFA may choose to pit the English clubs against each other when the draw is made for the quarter-finals, on March the 20th in Nyon.
